Synopsis:
"The Watchmaker's Apprentice" is a fascinating portrait of two remarkable men. It tells the incredible story of George Daniels' rise from Dickensian poverty to become the world's greatest living watchmaker and the one man who, through relentless tenacity, would become accepted as his one and only apprentice: Roger W. Smith. The Watchmaker's Apprentice is a unique testimony to their extraordinary craft, touching relationship and unique personalities. It's about gentle obsession and inspiring perseverance, a compelling insight into what makes the greatest mechanical artists tick.
It is about time itself and the opportunities we have to leave an eternally lasting imprint on the world from our fleeting existence. Narrated by actor John Rhys-Davies, this highly anticipated film contains the last interview George Daniels gave, just months before his death in October 2011.
